I have finally, finally found a website to use for my writing. This site is great: easy to use, accessible everywhere, and has a very organized look to it. The best part is the virtual lack of formatting involved in posting stories. Other sites I've used are intended as print on demand services, and the writer/poster has to do quite a bit to conform documents to various printing requirements. While the end result can turn out shiny and impressive, I haven't found lots of readers willing to buy an expensive product from an unknown writer. This leaves the writer with a great looking book that may never be opened.
Wattpad.com is really targeted more at online readers. An uploaded story can be shared as a complete work or posted in serialized form, and can gain readership instantly. Thank you, SCBWI newsletter!
I'm proud to share a novel on my page that many of my friends are familiar with. Please visit my wattpad page to read The Lady and the Minstrel, or check out my short stories.
What's next? Immersing myself in new book cover designs....oh, Christmas, when you're over I won't be leaving my art table for weeks!
